 Cannot Start - YANMAR 3110D

Being retired on low income, I tried to replace my old Ford 4000 diesel at as low a cost as possible. I read up on Yanmar and decided to look for a large one. I found a YM3110D in Edmonton, Alberta CA for what I thought to be a good price and just took delivery this morning.

Unfortunately, the closest loading ramp was 3 miles away. The tractor started promptly and ran very smoothly. But after unloading the tractor and starting toward home, the tractor gushed a lot of smoke and quit running after going only a few hundred feet. I couldn't get it started with many tries and the truck driver was gone by then, so I had to have someone tow it to my home. It still will not start, although it does make an effort to do so at times. I'm wondering if it just flooded out after getting warmed up. My Ford had glow plugs, so I've never used ether, and hesitate to use it now.

What do you suggest I do about this tractor? I very much need an owner's manual and service manual. The freight truck driver didn't know anything about the tractor or what the various knobs were for.

 Cannot Start - YANMAR 3110D

I don't know why I couldn't get the pop-up reply to work for your post so this is a reply.

Some inter-state/international shipping regs might require a tractor to be shipped without oils, fuel or battery. In that case it shouldn't have started at all, but I sure hope no oil isn't the answer.

Off the top of my head: if the smoke was black I'd check for an air intake manifold obstruction. Who knows, maybe somebody put a rag in the air-cleaner for shipping. At least that would be a simple fix unless material was injected into the engine. If the smoke was gray, I'd check for fuel-line obstructions or air in the lines.

You've probably been around diesels for awhile and know the basic stuff. I don't know the tractor but somebody here probably does and might help with a manual as well.
